These are some of the ways and means employed by spammers to find e-mail addresses:
- With the help of some softwares which scan Web sites to find out the sign . Then they store the information on both sides of the sign.
- Through pop-ups that are projecting lucrative offers. Just one click on these windows is enough to retrieve your e-mail address. Such windows generally have a button which says Click To Close. Such buttons are so prominent that we are forced to alter our usual mode of closing by clicking on the sign at the top right of the window.
- Through viruses specially created for spamming.
